Austria & Germania is the fourth coin from Germania Mint’s Allegories, coming to Collectors in 2021


Allegories Series

In the Western world, the first feminine impersonation of nations were usually majestic manifestations of values ​​considered to characterize the communities of given countries or regions. Many of these visualizations came from the image of goddess Athena and took the Latin names of the ancient Roman provinces, such as Germania, Polonia, Britannia and Italia.

在西方世界,國家的第一個女性化身通常是被認為是特定國家或地區社區特征的價值的雄偉表現。

Many of these visualizations came from the image of goddess Athena and took the Latin names of the ancient Roman provinces, such as Germania, Polonia, Britannia and Italia.


Obverse

The obverse of the coin presents the personifications of Austria and Germania, depicted as young and beautiful women.

在過去,奧地利女士被認為是多民族國家的縮影,在日耳曼尼亞造幣廠的藝術視野中,她手持長矛,象征著世界的軸心、權力、尊嚴和榮譽。奧地利的頭部裝飾著月桂花環,這是一個具有多種積極意義的象征,而日耳曼尼亞的頭頂則是一棵橡樹的樹枝,這棵樹從這個系列的一開始就伴隨著她。另外,日耳曼尼亞女神手持著帝國寶劍 "Reichsschwert"。這兩個德國亞馬遜人之間的親密關系代表了兩種文化之間的友誼。


Reverse

According to the previous series, the image on the reverse is the coat of arms representing moral principles and noble values. Germania was a historical land and has never been an official country, that’s why we’ve decided to create our own interpretation of its coat of arms. Its symbols and design are a creation of our imagination, however it has been created in accordance with applicable heraldry rules.

Germania Mint’s visualisation of the Bicephalous eagle – a Roman mythology symbol associated with Janus, god of all origins, guardian of doors, gates, passages and bridges, patron of contracts and alliances. Heads facing opposite sides symbolize the past and the future.

The check pattern refers to wisdom and prudence – characteristics of every noble sovereign.

The gold ribbon with three flowers. Flowers represent determining values of a strong and independent nation – unity, integrity and freedom.

The wild boar symbol of mightiness was a very popular and respectful animal in Roman Empire. Legio I Italica, Legio X Fretensis and Legio XX Valeria Victrix are three of the most famous Roman legions with boar in their emblem.

The Coat of Arms is surrounded by the wreath of oak leaves. Wreath symbolizes loyalty, stability and national unity. In Mythology and ancient times only people who wielded enormous power – spirit, muscle or magic – were allowed to wear it.

All values presented in symbolism above, were respected by Germania and Austria.
